(Dec. 10) This Saturday morning, the view from my window was so pretty.
The ground was white with frost and the field across the road was also a picture to see. The stubble from the cornstalks were peeping up through a blanket of white frost that looked like a snow this morning.
My thermometer in the back window said 20 degrees. The sun shining so bright on the frost made it sparkle like rhinestones on a beautiful lady’s dress.
As I sit in my chair and drink my cup of coffee, the steam from it rises and circles like thin clouds, and I remember that the Bible tells us that our life is like a vapor — it is here then gone so quickly. I see so many lessons of life from the simple small thing.
All of my small plants are thriving in the east window as the sun comes in each morning. I have collected a lot of “small” planters from yard sales, etc., and pot them to give as gifts.
I really enjoy doing this. It’s like I go to my garden each morning and see how they are growing. If they need water or maybe just telling them how beautiful they are. I know, you think I’m a crazy old woman, but that’s OK too. Everything and everyone needs praise from time to time.
My coffee is getting cold, so I have to drink it and think about breakfast. That’s about all I want to do this morning — is “think about it,” but the day has begun and I must go and face what this day has in store and be so thankful that I have another one given me.
As I leave today I want to quote from the 23rd Psalm: 1-3: “The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restoreth my soul.”
Until next time may you have a great week, and God bless you all!
